We investigated different ways to join materials.


First we used glue. It was easy to join the material but it didn't stick very well. 

Then we tried stapling along the edges. This worked, although we needed a bit of help from our teachers. 

Finally we had a go at sewing. This was a good way of joining as well but we found it really tricky so it took a long time. 

We decided that we would use staples to join our material together. 


We looked at lots of different puppets and then designed our own. 

We made our puppets by using fabric crayons to create our designs. Then we joined the fabric using staples. 

Look at our amazing puppets. I'm sure you'll agree that we have done a fantastic job of following our designs. 

We have absolutely LOVED this DT project and have continued to develop our skills further by making puppets in the creative area.
